    Hi Jason
    I am also a below knee amputee and know exactly what you are going through. I lost my leg 18 months ago aged 49 due to sepsis and I have severe neuropothy in my other leg so find it hard to use my prosthetic leg as I have no feeling in my other leg and I also only have vision in one eye which affects balance . 
    Hope you are getting support it's really is life changing
